Interview with Recognized Developer Faryaab

Welcome to another episode of XDA-Interviews, where we try to talk with those members that have been developing on XDA to bring us great ROM´s and applications.

This time, we will talk with Faryaab, a 14 year old Chef who is actively working on the XPERIA X1, the HTC Desire, and on the Samsung Galaxy S.

orb3000: Thanks a lot Faryaab for giving us some time for this interview. So, you are 14 years old, I dare to ask how long have you been developing and how did it all start?

Faryaab: It all started from my HTC Wizard. I wanted Windows Mobile 6 on it and was searching a lot in Google and came on this site first i was blown away with the work the developers had done. Then i started flashing my Wizard I was a really happy user. The same thing also happened to my HTC Artemis but when i got my XPERIA X1 i was the happiest KID EVER. Then i started to learn how to cook Windows Mobile ROMs and started cooking them for my X1. Later on I found out that my X1 can run Android. I was really amaze that a phone can run 2 OSs. Then I became the Android developer of the X1 and since then i bought two more devices the HTC Desire and the Samsung Galaxy S and the compatibility of the phones were out of the world and then also started cooking for them.

orb3000: Why is it that you chose the Xperia, the Desire, and the Galaxy S for cooking? Was it just because you have those devices? Or perhaps you saw something special on them?

Faryaab: I only had those mobile phones and in my opinion they were the best phones at their time.

orb3000: What advice would you give to the members who are willing to learn the art of cooking?

Faryaab: Just don’t give up and keep trying and searching and you will definitely succeed.

orb3000: What is your opinion about Windows Phone 7? Will you consider cooking for that platform?

Faryaab: I think Windows Phone 7 OS is has real potential but it needs more productivity. Maybe I will cook for Windows Phone 7 OS but not soon.

orb3000: Do you have plans for cooking for more devices? If so, which ones?

Faryaab: I will be cooking for the Samsung Galaxy S II device when I buy it later this year.

orb3000: What do you do for living?

Faryaab: I’m a student so I study.

orb3000: Why is the name for your ROM´s F1?

Faryaab: I name my rom series F1 because I love formula one so my every Android build name start’s from F1.

orb3000: What is the main problem you have faced cooking for Galaxy S?

Faryaab: Bugged stock Samsung base firmwares.

orb3000: Are you planning to expand your work to other devices or operating systems in the future?

Faryaab: Yes after Android I might start cooking for WP7.

orb3000: Thanks a lot for your time and we hope to talk to you later on.

Thanks to all our readers.

CloudPlayer: DIY HiFi Music Streaming Solution

In our Helpful Guide to Music Streaming Services, we mentioned several different services that offer ways to stream catalogs of music directly to your device. While each service has their benefits and drawbacks, the common theme among them is to give you access to a vast library of music without the need to store your own, and charge you a monthly fee for the privilege. But what if you already had access to your own catalog of music? Sure, there...
